Class Description

Let’s start the new year with an Improv Class! With this class, we are going to improve our character development and creation skills by learning the rules and guidelines for improv, as well as several performance type improv games. Improvisation is a great skill to learn for an actor in live theatre. With practice, it helps you to think quick on your feet when something goes wrong on stage, for example, when a line is forgotten or a prop breaks in the middle of a scene. By using these techniques students will demonstrate their ability to take risks and follow impulses with an improv performance. All games and scenes will use social distance procedures. 

 

Teacher:


Anna Hansen

Anna Hansen has been involved with the theatre world since she was little. After graduating Spotsylvania High School in 2006, she taught theatre classes and helped backstage in the early beginnings of CYT Fredericksburg. Soon after, she moved to Harrisonburg to further her education in theatre at Blue Ridge Community College. There, she had the opportunity to stage managed and acted for big shows like Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Marriage of Bette and Boo, Dupont Mississippi, and Barefoot in the Park. After marrying her college sweetheart, Patrick, she continued to stay in the Rockingham County area, creating theatre summer camps and directing the Christmas plays at her church. Along with their two kids, Riley and Chance, they felt led to move to Culpeper to be closer to family and she continued to direct the Christmas plays there at her new church. Around that time, she became involved with a wonderful program called Actors, Models, & Talent for Christ (AMTC). Studying from acting coaches and mentors, and casting directors in the entertainment industry in New York, she was able to audition for other casting directors and VPs of big film and theatre businesses. Through that incredible experience, she found a family with Kingdom Bound Productions. She performed as Susan in Mirror Woman and had roles in a couple of their pilot episodes. Finding home once again in her hometown of Spotsylvania, she immediately came back to the CYT family to teach theatre classes and direct shows.
